Downtown Bozeman is pleased to announce its continued commitment to sustainability and beautification with the purchase of 120 Earth Planter self-watering hanging flower baskets for summer 2023. This move follows the successful piloting of two self-watering baskets in 2019 and the purchase of 42 self-watering baskets in 2022 for the expanded flower basket boundary to include Mendenhall St and Babcock St. The 120 new baskets will replace the existing wrought iron baskets on the side streets of downtown.
The Earth Planter self-watering baskets provide improved plant growth by regulating water delivery based on soil conditions while reducing labor costs, fuel and water usage. The baskets only need to be watered 2-3 times per week rather than 7 times per week. Learn more about the baskets HERE.
The Downtown Bozeman Business Improvement District (BID) board plans to continue this effort and buy more self-watering baskets for Main Street in the coming years.
A total of 316 hanging flower baskets will be installed downtown by mid-June by Oak Gardens Nursery. The Downtown BID invites community members out to stroll Main Street to check out the new baskets and enjoy one of Bozeman’s favorite summer traditions!
